講電話?食餅啦!


有藝人駕車失事,幸好車傷人安全,不過因為藝員身分,引來不少花邊新聞。

前因後果當然有不少穿鑿附會,不過我們留意到是撞車後,司機位置附近發現不少「餅碎」,因而被懷疑有人食餅分心而引致車禍。

這當中引起一個很有趣問題:揸車講電話係人都知犯法,那麼到底揸車食餅犯唔犯法?

Robert Frank 的"The Economic Naturalist",就告訴我們,原來立法都是一個經濟學行為。

有這樣一個例子:揸車講電話基本上與司機同車內人傾偈基本上無分別,談話內容一樣令人分心,咁點解傾偈又唔犯法。

一個解釋是乘客身處車中,可以判斷行車出意外的機會率,一旦發現勢色不對,為自身安全,就會停止談話,並提醒司機留神,相反傾電話的對方,就對司機駕駛狀態毫不知情。

不過試問有幾多個乘客會真的留意馬路狀況?這種想法似一廂情願較多。

Robert Frank提出了一個很好的解說:如果禁止司機揸車化妝、食餅、食煙,結果可能會引發大量產品銷售商反對,鼓動出來的政治勢力,搞不好分分鐘令政策制定者自己下台。

相反,立法強制揸車人士要載免提才可以傾電話,電訊商同流動電話公司不單止沒有減少收入,反而透過增加配件/ 新功能電話(藍芽),可以令收入增加,咁仲點解要立法禁止?

當然,香港法例之中有一條不小心駕駛,如果警方有能力證明你撞車前因為掛住咬餅而出現交通意外,揸車食餅仍然可能會被裁定犯法,不過以疑點歸於被告,要證實一個人一路揸車、一路食餅也不容易吧?
